We arrived at this place at 4pm and stayed for 2 nights. I wish it had been longer. It is rather magical. Acres of exquisite gardens, a huge lake, beautiful follies, buildings, towers. The pool was glorious (all to ourselves). We stayed in the stable rooms, which I think is more preferable than the main building. The stable rooms were...

We stayed at this hotel for one night and left before our scheduled departure. It was a little strange. It reminded us of a haunted castle. We expected to run into ghosts or spirits. The windows of our room were small and covered in stained glass (a relic, we were told, of the Victorian era) so the rooms were dark...

From the lush gardens, to the splendor of dinner under the night sky. The Lake Palace is an incredible gem in the buzzing blue city, allowing for a private and royal getaway for those who love peace and quiet. We were free to roam the private grounds and explore the beauty of the Palace's natural wonder. There were bright and...

The place is really an oasis in the desert. Its a beautiful place that I will recommend to everyone who is going to Jodhpur. A few km outside town set in the middle of beautiful gardens by the side of a lake. You can spend hours just walking around and enjoying this place. And the best part is that you...

We booked the Maharani Suite overlooking the lake for our 40th wedding anniversary. The suite was large and spacious but not particularly comfortable. Hot water was a big issue... we didn't get any! The terrace and lake view were magnificent and it was exceptional to wake up with the views. The building we were in was remote from everything else...

Our room was comfortable and well-appointed but...

We visited the place on my brother in laws advise. He had stayed at this property a few months ago.

we only stayed here one night, but was impressed wirh the friendliness of this place. The hotel has maintained a lot of its history and I would certainly recommend it for a short stay. Nothing seems too much for the staff.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
WelcomHeritage Bal Samand Lake Palace is a fleeting distance of 5 kilometers from the city of Jodhpur. It is located on the Mandore Road, overlooking the astounding still and clear Balsamand Lake. It is indeed a true spectacle of a view. The heritage property is built in red sandstone & employs typical ornate Rajput architecture. It is conceived to be the summer residence of the Jodhpur Maharajas in the glorious past. The Bal Samand Lake was artificially created in the 13th century as a water reservoir that supplied drinking water to the city. It now compliments the lush greens and heritage terraced gardens of the property. ... more   less
